Letters

  • Grant Co. resident supports Threlkeld

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter to ask the people in this county to elect John Brent Threlkeld to the office of Circuit Court Judge. In the seven years I have known him, he has grown into a very trusted friend, and I know he is the best person for this job.

  • Support the EPA’s efforts to protect the Clean Water Act

    Editor:

    In Kentucky, we are blessed with lots of fresh water.

    But much of that water is at risk. The Clean Water Act, intended to protect our waterways from pollution, is under attack from industry groups, which desire to pollute, cover or destroy critical waterways.

  • Two voters support Grimes in race

    Editor: 

    Be an informed voter. It will soon be time to vote in the upcoming election. Before you vote, did you know you can go online and check out the voting record of candidates? We did just that and you can too.

    At the end of this letter will be an Internet address you can access to check the facts we have found. 

    Here is what we found, Sen. Mitch McConnell’s voting records:

  • McConnell can make Senate action on bills

    Editor:

    This election is the most important in our lifetime. I believe Obama has froze the Senate only Harry Reid can approve any legislation that needs to be voted on. No one else has any authority.

    If McConnell wins this election he will be able to ensure bills can be voted on in the Senate. If Grimes wins nothing can occur legislatively without Reid and Obama’s approval. Hence then we are frozen in the Senate until Obama leaves in two years.

  • Owen resident supports McConnell for Congress

    Editor:

    In the interest of doing what is best for Kentucky and the nation, I request your vote for Mitch McConnell.  I ask that you consider the following:

    Experience— real experience in the Congressional Legislative process — does count.  Clearly Mitch has the overwhelming advantage over Alison’s documented lack of relevant experience.

    It is important that elected officials in Washington have our interest at heart and not their own. 

  • Store works to help local families in need

    Editor:

    I would like to take the time to personally thank the community for all the wonderful support and donations we receive at “Our Little Thrift Store,” located next to Traderbakers on Hwy. 227. It has always been a dream to some day open a business of my own and to also be able to help by giving back to those who need a helping hand. Our Little Thrift Store has provided the opportunity to do so in so many different ways.

  • Retired teachers to collect for food pantry

    Editor:

    Retired Teachers’ week will be Oct. 19-25. The purpose of the week is to promote awareness of how retired educators give back to the community.

    Each year, the Kentucky Retired Teachers’ Association collects volunteer hours from each local association. For the 2013 year, CCRTA reported a total of 877 volunteer hours. The actual number was probably higher because not everyone reports their hours.

  • Perry Park resident supports McConnell for Senate

    Editor:
